The road ahead always looks bright when your e-bike has a headlight. With the exception of the J5, all Jetson electric bike models do. Read on to learn how to get your beam on.
Independent lighting control
The following Jetson e-bike models have simple, quick-push lighting control:
- Axle – There is a dedicated button on the handlebar that activates both the headlight and taillight together. Quick-press the button to turn both lights on or off.
- Bolt – A flip switch on the handlebar controls both the headlight and taillight. Push the switch up to turn the lights on, and push it down to turn them off.
- LX10 - Quick-press the headlight button to turn the headlight on or off; this bike only has a light up front.
Integrated lighting control
Some of our e-bikes have more complex electronic interfaces. To keep their handlebars ergonomic and all controls easy to reach, some buttons are multipurpose. Here’s how to access lighting control on these models.
- Bolt Pro and Bolt Up – Both cruise control and the headlight are controlled by the button on the right side of the handlebar. When quick-pressed, it activates cruise control; to turn on or off the headlight, hold it down, instead, for 4 full seconds.
Both the Bolt Pro and the Bolt Up also come with an attachable rear light, which you can fasten to the bike by wrapping it around the seat post. This rear light, which does not connect to the bike’s power system, has its own battery and power button. Quick-press that button to turn the light on; it will illuminate in a fast-flashing pattern. A second press of the button changes it to a slower flashing mode; a third press changes it to steady illumination; and a fourth press turns the light off.
- Adventure, Metro, Journey, and J8 – The “+” button next to the LCD display changes the bike to a higher pedal assist mode—but it is your headlight headquarters: Hold it down for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the headlight (and, for the Journey, also the taillight) on or off.
Like the Bolt Pro and Bolt Up, the Adventure also has an attachable rear light that is not connected to the bike’s main power system and has its own built-in battery. There is a small power button on this light which, when quick-pressed, turns the rear light on or off.
